  1. 1. Identification and characterization of candidate genes for neuroblastoma development

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Author : Cecilia Krona; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cancer; tumor; child; embryonal; neural crest; neuroblastoma; chromosome 1; 1p36; mutation; expression; tumor suppressor gene; UBE4B; KIF1B; PGD; CORT; DFFA; PEX14; ICAT; CASP9; ENO1; MBP1; APITD1; PHOX2B;

    Abstract : Neuroblastoma (NB) is the most common tumor during infancy. It arises from undifferentiated cells in the sympathetic nervous system and is characterized by both clinical and genetic heterogeneity. One of the features of NBs with unfavorable outcome is loss on distal chromosome 1p. READ MORE

  2. 2. From 1p3 to PI3K - Studies of neuroblastoma

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Author : Susanne Fransson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cancer; neuroblastoma; PI3K; PIK3CD; 1p36; alternative splicing; tumor; neural crest; mucosa; premalignant; tumor suppressor gene; oncogene; gene expression; epigenetics; splicing; signaling; akt; western blot; TaqMan; PIK3R1; p110H; p37H; p85; RAS;

    Abstract : Neuroblastoma (NB) is a tumor of the sympathetic nervous system and is the most common extra-cranial tumor of childhood, accounting for 7% of all pediatric malignancies. Despite recent advances in therapeutics, outcome is still fatal for patients with aggressive NB and side-effects of treatment are severe. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Neuroblastoma Genome and Epigenome - Patient Stratification and Identification of Candidate Genes

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Author : Helena Carén; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cancer; neuroblastoma; epigenetics; DNA methylation; microarray; tumor suppressor gene; tumor; embryonal; neural crest; bisulfite sequencing; 1p36; 11q; MYCN; CASZ1; PIK3CD; PRKCDBP; SCNN1A; TGFBI; DHRS3; KRT19; DUSP23; APITD1; H2AFX;

    Abstract : Neuroblastoma (NB) is a tumor of the sympathetic nervous system, and the most common extracranial tumor of childhood. The prognosis for high-stage NBs is still poor, with survival rates of about 35%. Side-effects of treatment in these young children can also be severe. READ MORE

  4. 4. The role of KIF1Bß in neuroblastoma tumour suppression during sympathetic neuron development

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Cell and Molecular Biology

    Author : Stuart Fell; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Neuroblastoma, the most common extra-cranial childhood tumour, is believed to arise from precursor cells of the sympathetic nervous system (neuroblasts). Hemizygous loss of chromosome 1p36 strongly correlates with poor prognosis in neuroblastoma and the 1p36 gene KIF1Bβ has been proposed to be a pathogenic target of this deletion. READ MORE

  5. 5. Genetic alterations in Scandinavian neuroblastoma tumors

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Cell and Molecular Biology

    Abstract : The results presented here derive from our efforts to find genes and chromosomal regions of interest in the formation and progression of the childhood tumor neuroblastoma.Neuroblastoma is the most common extracranial solid tumor of childhood. READ MORE
